Played with my new Shooting Chrony today. Got about what I expected from my handloads in my 30-06 but was really surprised by some Federal Premium Safari's in my 300 Winchester. The 180 grain partitions were clocked at 3159,3255,3129,and 3205 fps. Is my barrel fast? Hart 26" tube with about 150 rounds thru it so far. Anyone else clocked factory loads?

Thats about right for the 26" tube, but your Extreme Spread SUCKS.
129 fps in 4 rounds won't do much for those 600-800 yard groups...They must have been drunk at the factory that day!

Chris, what sort of extreme spread should I be working toward in my handloads? I know less is better, but what is realistic?

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen


Nightforce ATACR Scope Review
By Jeff Brozovich

The new NightForce ATACR is for sure a top choice for any long range shooter. Read More


The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
